Primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other health care providers are on the front lines of implementing screening recommendations for liver diseases. AASLD developed Fundamentals of Liver Disease (previously, ACT-First) — for these first-line providers.

Fundamentals of Liver Disease will improve providers’ knowledge and clinical skills in hepatology by learning:

  • which patients to screen
  • how to screen
  • what to do in the patient with positive serologies and/or abnormal liver tests
  • how to decide who is a candidate for therapy
  • what co-morbidities and complications to look for
  • how to care for the patient with chronic liver disease

Five units, each containing seven to nine modules, are currently available.

This is a FREE online educational resource that offers CME/CE credits and MOC points.

 

Components of this course were developed through relationships with American College of Physicians (ACP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes).
